  • ERROR: Gen. 30:20 in LHI

    No idea why, but the ZBL root in Gen. 30:20 is translated as "acknowledge". The text reads יִזְבְּלֵ֣נִי ( yiz:b' lei niy... the lemma is zaabh al ). This is acknowledged to mean either "exalt" or "dwell"...either is possible contextually (but not both...the context of Gen. 30:20 only allows for either/or...some lexicons and interpreters try to straddle

    Many of the things I said above are stated in the Wikipedia article I linked to above. I have encountered bits and pieces over the years, and its possible that I wrote down citations at that time, but I can't put my finger on them at this time. If I do cross paths with any of that info, I will post references here, but I can't say that it's on my intentional

    [quote user="Reuben Helmuth"]I'm a linguist and find your description of the IPA as "non-secure" (especially as it relates to consonants which are the point of current contention) so far off that I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. These are as secure as anatomy so that's close enough for me since I'm not a philosopher.[/quote] Your knee is jerking

  • Re: Hebrew Audio Bible - Another Appeal

    Well, that's part of the problem. Most of the info on this is piecemeal. I have found resources online that will make a comment on this or that point regarding pronunciation, but I don't have at hand any resource that systematically covers all aspects of this topic. Many of the ones that do discuss this employ the IPA symbols and use their terminology

    [quote user="Reuben Helmuth"]What I would really like to see is to have Faithlife commission Omer Frenkel to complete the rest of the OT. His recording of the Torah is the only that I would consider a 5-star or gold-standard. It's truly a pleasure both in terms of pronunciation and vocal timbre! I simply can not find a website anymore that provides

    Zagging here. "NONEs" sounds to me like exactly what YHWH would finagle as we approach the end. If Will has it right, and these disaffecteds and disconnecteds are open to potential Truth but uncommitted to the historical "how it's done" due to the feckless ham-fistedness of a Church Under A Curse, then I am finally seeing a glimmer of hope for how He

    I'm not sure what good any discussion would produce, since Logos is in the habit of cutting things off without recourse. I had many ChristianDiscourse conversations I wanted to have access to but they all evaporated.
